AKC/Eukanuba National Championship to Air February 2 on ABC

NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The 12th edition of the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, featuring the country’s premier dogs vying for the biggest dog show prize in the world and special features like a ceremony honoring hero dogs, will air on ABC on Saturday, February 2nd, at 2 pm EST (check local listings).

AKC’s Gina DiNardo and ESPN anchor Todd Grisham will share commentary duties during the broadcast of the National Championship. With DiNardo’s life-long involvement in the sport of purebred dogs and Grisham’s humor and enthusiasm, it will make for a fun as well as educational broadcast for all dog lovers.

“The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship offers the public the opportunity to learn more about each of AKC’s 175 breeds and how the predictability of purebred dogs can make it easy to match a particular breed to fit your lifestyle,” DiNardo said. “Viewers will be able to see each Best of Breed winner compete in the group ring, watch highlights from our Breeder of the Year and AKC Humane Fund Awards for Canine Excellence presentations, and much, much more. We hope you enjoy the show!”

Two new AKC-recognized breeds will make their AKC/Eukanuba National Championship debut during the broadcast – the Russell Terrier and the Treeing Walker Coonhound. Watch them compete during the broadcast and learn more about their history and function at www.akc.org.

During the broadcast, AKC will host a Virtual Viewing Party at 2 pm EST with behind-the-scenes tidbits on Facebook and a Tweet Chat on Twitter using the hashtag #celebratedogs. Fans can stop by to root for their favorites, chat with other dog show enthusiasts or post a photo of their dog enjoying the broadcast.

Highlights from the daytime Best of Breed judging and the Bred-By-Exhibitor groups are also available here.
